ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package

The Australian ICT industry is a service industry rather than a specialised ICT focused industry, with the result that national ICT career pathways have become more vertical than horizontal, and are requiring the versatility to incorporate a mix of various ICT skills, rather than relying on the historically fixed specialist skills and pathways of the past.
Qualifications in the ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package have been developed to enable a specialist outcome in the key ICT areas, combined with the flexibility to incorporate a diverse range of skill sets so as to provide a wider career pathway outcome.

ICT Information & Communications Technology Training Package version 3 is currently available to view and download on the training.gov.au (TGA) website.
ICT Information & Communications Technology Training Package contains:

  • 44 AQF aligned qualifications
  • 46 skill sets
  • 663 native units of competency
  • 92 imported units of competency.
